Hotel on the countryside, difficult to find. We drove our own car and wouldn't have found the place without gps and local assistance. Rooms comfortable and ok, nice view over the surroundings. The pool was nice and we had a wonderful walk through the spice garden and paddy fields together with a guide provided by the hotel. General impression is... More

A small hotel in a very beautiful garden with only 7 bundalows. I don't know if it applies to all bungalows but ours had whirlpool! Tired and dirty after the long travel we enjoyed them so much! The place was very clean, the staff very friendly, the food good. The hotel has obviously a very good looking pool that we... More

Our family stayed only 1 night at County Gardens in the Governor's Family Suite. This small, gem of a hotel is about 45 minutes outside of Kandy on a typical rocky, curvy narrow Sri Lankan road. It worked perfect for us - as we were 1/2 way through our 2 week trip of Sri Lanka and we were all ready... More

The hotel was immaculately clean, the food is fresh and delicious and the service professional and respectful. We had 2 very restful days at this hotel. The manager is very helpful and supportive and wanted us to enjoy our stay as much as possible.

My partner and I booked 2 nights here but missed the first night due to a late train and bad luck with 2 dodgy tuk-tuk drivers (the only times on our month in Sri Lanka that we had problems). Turin, the manager was sympathetic with what happened so gave us an extra night. First and foremost the location was great... More

First things first - location-wise it's fair to say the Country Garden Resort is in the middle of nowhere. This might not be to your liking but if, on the other hand, you're looking for some peace and quiet, then this place is perfect. Furthermore the setting is absolutely stunning; with views across a huge, lush green valley and with... More

This hotel is located a 40 minute tuk-tuk ride outside Kandy. The local area is perfect for a variety of short walks to explore paddy fields and tea plantations and to discover some lovely views east along the valley towards Kandy. There are some charming hotel dogs who will keep you company and stop you getting lost. Our eco-lodge was... More

We stayded here to visit Kandy and the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage. As it is situated in the middle of nature it can be difficult to find. We ourselves had navigation with us and your driver can ask around. It is a great place to do day-trips and to relax afterwards enjoying the serene surroundings. We stayed one whole day relaxing...

It's funny I'm writing this review, because I personally have no visited this so called "boutique resort" yet. Two of my friends from UK were travelling to Kandy, and could not find this hotel, so i went online and managed to find a contact number for this resort. I called [-] and a gentleman by the name of Gordon answered.... More
